last night. really shortly after 9:00 p.m. was when dzhokhar tsarnaev was taken into custody and the result was quite extraordinary. people were cheering in the streets. i think probably cheers all over this nation for the end of this really a reign of terror for some 24 hours for the city of boston and its suburbs. but also, really since monday. let's go right now and talk about what the investigators are going to do as they get to the bottom of everything. the next move with mark rossini, he helped create the national counterterrorism center. thank you for joining me all the way from paris. we appreciate that. let's talk about what will happen with dzhokhar tsarnaev, now going to be questioned by the elite 450i value detainee interrogation group made up of a bunch of high-ranking officials, fbi, cia, defense department. beyond the obvious of why, mark, what are the first questions they will ask him? >> well, beyond the why, of course, is who directed you? did you do this upper the direction of a foreign government or foreign service group and then the questions will go from
. suspected boston bomber dzhokhar tsarnaev was charged today with a weapon -- using a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death following three deaths and 180 injured in last week's marathon attack. the criminal complaint includes the description of footage of him leaving a knapsack on the ground where the explosion took place. another similar bomb was found at the site of the watertown shootout. tsarnaev remains in a boston hospital tonight unable to speak because of injuries that include a gunshot wound to his neck. but he's being questioned by authorities already and responding with written answers. in medford, massachusetts, today a funeral was held for 29-year-old victim krystle campbell. in boston, deval patrick and mayor menino requested a moment of silence at 2:50 to mark the one-week anniversary of the bombing. great public servants up there. we begin with those new charges filed against dzhokhar tsarnaev. pete william is nbc's chief justice correspondent. pete, we have charges. >> we do. couple things about the charges. both of the
of the weekend. we know that the fbi is interrogating dzhokhar tsarnaev. what are they hoping to get from him at this point? >> interrogating may be a bit of a grand word here, because it's certainly not the kind of interrogation they had planned, where they speak to someone. it's being conducted with notes and nods and because he can't speak, he's on a ventilator. so it's a very slow process. but during this period, their government is limited in terms of what they can ask him. because they're doing this public safety exception to the miranda rule. they've not advised him of his rights. so they can only ask about potential threats to public safety. were there other conspirators, other bombs out there, any reason to believe that public safety is in any way jeopardized. >> pete, one of the persons cited in terms of this idea that there may have been more violent plans on order at the hands of the brothers is this person who was hijacked by the brothers on thursday night. and the driver of a mercedes suv. we know that he's been cooperating with police. is there anything else that we know about
believe the 19-year-old man dzhokhar tsarnaev could be holed up. the crews are planning to wait him out. local police say they could continue through the weekend. nearby in cambridge, that is right near the home of the suspected bombers and their relatives, police plan to perform some sort of controlled explosion. also right now in southern massachusetts, the campus of umass dartmouth is being evacuated. the school has confirmed someone connected to the bombings is enrolled as a student there. we're trying to clear up those details for you. we know this began last night with reports of gunfire on the m.i.t. campus. police say the man shot and killed 26-year-old sean collier, an m.i.t. police officer, who was just sitting in his cruiser. his broad was riddled with several gunshots. the two men car jacked a mercedes suv at gunpoint. police began a chase while those suspects were throwing explosives from the vehicle. they reportedly told that owner of the car they were indeed the marathon bombers, but then miraculously they released the man unharmed. the pursuit moved to watertown. that is
that the authorities believe they know where dzhokhar tsarnaev is, the suspect in the white hat is. and concerns about a third relative, which explains the larger drag net, if you will, and why the entire greater boston area was asked to shelter in place. >> it could explain that, chuck, because there's a contradiction there. if they know where he is, why would they shut down the entire city of boston, which they did like less than an hour ago when governor patrick came out here. there's still a lot of unanswered questions here, but, first, i want to point out, chuck. we're right across at the watertown mall right across the street is the main staging area that you were referring to before. and earlier this morning and we've been here for hours now, we saw convoys of military humvees, buses filled with police, motorcycles, state police officers and all congregating in that staging area in the parking lot right behind us. there's a marshal's department store there. it looked to me at first like there was going to be some, they were planning for some sort of confrontation or assault, we haven't seen tha
is expected to be formally charged. we know dzhokhar tsarnaev is still in serious condition but talking to investigators mostly in writing because he's got a bullet wound to the throat. and the boston police commissioner has said he believes there could have been more attacks. >> there were over 200 rounds fired at the scene. they were armed with sidearms and explosive devices. one that has been widely publicized was one of the pressure cooker devices similar to what we saw on boylston street. >> and beyond any immediate threat or the question of motive, there is another question that is key to this investigation. as evidence mounts that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev took a radical turn, when exactly? what about that six-month trip to dagestan and chechnya. i want to bring in pete williams. good morning once again. i want to start with dzhokhar tsarnaev. do we know specifically beyond serious condition how he's doing and how much talking he's doing? >> well, very little talking because of his throat wound. serious but stable condition is the way they describe it. we have been tol
. >>> as soon as dzhokhar tsarnaev is medically available, he will be questioned by the federal government's elite high-value detainee interrogation group. so how do they get inside the mind of a terrorist? my next guest spent 30 years in counterterrorism and was the co-lead of the u.s.s. cole bombing investigation. joining me now in studio, robert mcfadden, former deputy assistant director for counterintelligence operations. let's go to what's happening inside that hospital room right now, this high-value detainee is being interviewed, if he can speak, which actually remains in question. what are the first things they need to find out. >> just going by my background and working some cases like this before, and with an acknowledgement that i'm going to have to come up with some different term that we remain in speculation territory. but in a case like this, first and foremost, is the medical question. he's got to be lucid, cleared by doctors, and then the interview will start. the very first thing, once a degree of rapport and accord is built with the young man will be any other plots. bec
as dzhokhar tsarnaev lies in a hospital bed facing charges. his condition now reported as fair. more than a week after the bombing, 45 of the scores of wounded remain hospitalized, and at least 13 have lost limbs. for the victims, the physical and emotional toll comes with a very real financial one as well. massive bills for trauma care, prosthetic limbs and even home modifications. not to mention, lengthy physical rehab and psychological counseling. as such, one fund boston is stepping in to help. already raising over $10 million for victims and their families. and while the injured struggle with recovery, the families of those killed in the bombing are facing their own staggering loss. the family of 8-year-old martin richard held a private memorial releasing a statement today, "this has been the most difficult week of our lives, and we appreciate that our friends and family have given us space to grieve and heal. a private funeral mass was celebrated this morning with immediate family. we laid our son, martin, to rest, and he is now at peace." and friends, family and colleagues are sayi
, several republican senators today say they want dzhokhar tsarnaev tried as an enemy combat tant, not as a criminal defendant. >>> meanwhile, 53 people remain in boston hospitals today, three of them are in critical condition, including a 7-year-old girl. right now, we go to watertown, where the suspect, again, was captured last night. nbc's luke russert is standing by for us right now. luke, what's happening in watertown today? >> reporter: well, craig, it's really extraordinary. i will hold up a headline from the boston the globe, which says nightmare end, a fitting headline for all the residents of watertown. before i came into this hit with you, i went and walked through both of the crime scenes, the one where the secondment is was ultimately found in a boat and i went to where the big shootout was early friday morning and it's quite remarkable to see. this is very much a story of apple pie and chevrolet neighborhood, today, after all that horrific violence that happened in the community, all that fear that happened in the community, they were shutdown, families are out. you
. police cornered 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev in a two-hour standoff. he was hiding in a boat in the backtown of a watertown home. he had been shot, he lost a lot of blood. this morning he is in a boston area hospital. at last check he was listed in serious condition. after his capture, massachusetts governor deval patrick and authorities praised police efforts and the community's cooperation. >> it was a very, very complicated case, a very challenging case, and there are still some questions remaining to be answered. but as the colonel said, because of that extraordinary collaboration and cooperation by all of these law enforcement resources and assets and more to the point people, professionals, who brought their "a" game, we have a suspect in custody tonight. >> the community stood strong. it was a call from a resident in watertown. we asked you to remain vigilant, and you did. we got that call and we got the guy. and so we can't thank you enough. you've done everything and more than we've asked. extremely proud of law enforcement today and what we've accomplished. >> this
hospital bed with conspireing to use weapons of mass destruction. 19-year-old dzhokhar zorn yef s tsarnaev is charged with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. the charges could carry the death penalty. after much speculation, the white house explained today why tsarnaev will not be prosecuted as an enemy combatant. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. under u.s. law the united states citizens can not be tried in military commissions. and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> tsarnaev now lies under armed guard unable to speak due to what may be a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his neck. authorities continue to question him, relying on written answers at this point. but his answers may be somewhat less important in his prosecution given the volume of evidence in the federal complaint, including description of video after the first explosion. "bomber two virtually alone among the individuals
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
matthews picks things up right now. >>> dzhokhar tsarnaev. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews with the latest developments in the manhunt for the boston bombing suspect. 24 hours ago, the fbi released video and photos of the two suspects as i'm speaking, authorities are carrying out a massive manhunt for one of those suspects. 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev. he was born in the former soviet republic of kyrgyzstan. his family is chechnyan. he became an american citizen last year on 9/11. authorities are searching house to house in the boston suburb of watertown where he's believed to be holed up. older brother, suspect number one was killed last night in a shootout with police. nbc news reports that at that shootout, 200 rounds were exchanged. and before that happened, he and his brother killed a security officer at m.i.t. held a man captive after carjacking him. and severely wounded another police officer. the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, was 26. nbc news learned he spent six months last year outside of the country. authorities are still piecing together w
terrorism charges against 19-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev will be filed today. lawmakers are already debating whether he should be read his miranda rights. >> you're giving them the option, as to whether or not they want to cooperate and i don't believe they should have that option. this is sole will i for the purpose of interrogation to find intelligence to get the intelligence that i believe we need. >> questions remain -- did the brothers have help in carrying out their attacks? >> we're satisfied that the two actors here, the two people that were committing the damage have either been arrested or killed. and the people of the city of boston can rest comfortably at this point in time. >>> but did the fbi miss warning signs after interviewing 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011? where did the brothers get their guns? their training? and their inspiration? >>> in washington, the boston terror attack could become an excuse to slow down immigration reform. >> if ways to improve the bill offered amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those pointin
that the community sort of begins to wrap its head around this, in so far as dzhokhar and tamerlan tsarnaev were part of the communities in which they lived. one was a wrestler, one was a boxer. >> can you state it a little louder, please? >> i was saying how does the community begin to wrap its head around what has happened. given the fact that two of the suspects, dzhokah tsarnaev and his brother, tamerlan tsarnaev, were very much part of the community in which they grew up. they went to local schools. one was competitive boxer, one was a wrestler. by all accounts they were you know, dzhokhar tsarnaev was seen as a nice guy, a shy guy in his high school. but liked. not an outcast by any means. you know how does a community begin to think of, begin to process something like this? >> well, it is what it is. you know people weren't, the fact that they are among us, humanity, some people who are, who are vicious and violent and morally deformed, we're aware of this. look at the people in texas are now experiencing the fact that you know, two prosecutors were murdered by a home-grown texan. people don't
guys are brothers. the man at large is dzhokhar tsarna, tsarnaev and looking to confirm his origin. >> according to mike barnicle and "the boston globe" reporting one of the suspects has lived here for some time, receiving some sort of high school scholarship. >> yeah. the city of cambridge awards a scholarship $2,500 to cambridge high school seniors and others who want to pursue higher education. according to the globe, the man at large, the 19-year-old in the white hat, in 2011, so just two years ago, was the recipient of one of these scholarships. that indicates he has lived in the cambridge area for some time. >> another piece of information that we have picked up over the hours here is that at some time, any time now, the police in boston will be conducting a controlled detonation at the area of calm in charles gate. this is according to their twitter site. i guess if anybody in the area hears something, not to be upset by it because this is a controlled detonation probably, as pete williams was telling us, probably one of the explosives or grenades that were thrown out of the
that dzhokhar tsarnaev, the one everybody is looking for, might be just a few blocks down here at an office complex. a security sensor had been -- had tipped off that there was, authorities, there was some intrusion that led everybody to think he was there. cars were zooming down here with screaming lights, and that turned out to be a wash. so i think that's just another reminder of how cautious we have to be until we know for sure where things stand. what we do know is he's on the loose. we do know -- we don't know -- there's no confidence that they know where he is and whether or not he has any accomplices. that may be an open question at this point. and probably the biggest open question of all is whether there are any more explosive devices, any ieds out there that he's left to maim and kill people that they don't know about. one was found in boston earlier today, and that may be the scariest singleknow, though, th police have been going door-to-door in this area all day. how far along do you think they are in securing the area? because as i understand it, at 12:30 when governor deval p
the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, who is now in the hospital. apparently he has a wound to the throat. did he try to commit suicide? >> i don't know the answer to that. >> do you know when doctors are saying he might actually be able to communicate? is there a real question about whether he'll be able to speak? >> i don't know those answers, david. i do know that he is in serious condition, but he's stable. and there are investigators prepared to interview him when he's able to be interviewed. >> the question about him coming onto the radar of the fbi two years ago. he was interviewed. he was tracked at the request of the russians, according to federal officials. these questions now, for you and authorities in massachusetts, have to raise some concerns, whether something was missed here? >> well, sure. there's a whole process here, and i think it was his brother, by the way, who was questioned by the fbi -- >> yes, forgive me. right. >> a whole host of questions, david, that you have, that i have, more to the point that the fbi, the atf, and other law enforcement agencies have and wil
the street. what they say they can see on the camera is the person identified as dzhokhar tsarnaev come into the view with his backpack on. he work his way into the crowd. he is talking on a cell phone. he appears to take the backpack off. then they say you can see the backpack at his feet in still photographs. then according to this video which the fbi has not released. this is merely a narrative description of it. the first bomb goes off. you can see everyone in the crowd that says except him. virtually everyone in the crowd look toward the first scene of the bombing. and he does not. he calmly waits, glances down eventually and then walks away about 10 to 13 seconds before the second bomb goes off which the fbi says he has just left on the ground. that's the first point. we learnt in the criminal complain, the most detailed description yet for the fbi. the key piece of video and photographs from all that material that they collected. the second point. they say both bombs in the marathon bombing were made from pressure cooker using a similar formula of low power explosive, bbs with ad
details today about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. ja h dzhokhar tsarnaev is listed in serious condition after he was taken into custody. the 19-year-old was found hiding in a boat parked outside a watertown home and there are new suspicions his older brother, who died in the shootout with police early friday morning, could have received terrorist training or support abroad. an official familiar with the matter tells nbc news that a foreign government has expressed concern back in 2011 that tamerlan tsarnaev could have ties to terrorism. the official says the fbi investigated but found no such links and reported the findings back to that foreign government. let's bring in msnbc analyst and former hostage negotiator james cavanagh. james, thanks for joining me again and great work yesterday through all of the mayhem, but i'm curious about the frequency with which we get a warning from a foreign government about someone who is here in our country that potentially has ties to terrorism. >> you know, that stuff does come in to federal agencies all the time really, alex.
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
of the suspects in the marathon bombings. dzhokhar tsarnaev is at large believed to be armed and extremely dangerous. after his older brother, tamerlan, was killed in a shootout with police early this morning. police are going door-to-door in the boston suburb of watertown where tsarnaev was last seen. the area has seen intense police activity all day long. a metro
reference the uncle who pleaded with his nephew, dzhokhar, give yourself up, give yourself up. and of course that is the fervent wish of law enforcement officials for a number of reasons. one is for the survival of dzhokhar tsarnaev because there is a manhunt for him and he will not escape that network of law enforcement at some point. this will not come to a good end. but also from a law enforcement perspective, we need to know who else is out there. he clearly had his brother as an accomplice but was there someone else involved. is this a cell? is it a local cell, home grown? is it foreign operated? is there an al qaeda or other splinter group connection? what did his brother do when he went back to russia, at least to russia? we know he arrived at an airport outside moscow. don't know where he went after that. his father is still -- returned to russia and was angry when called -- angry and grieving when called by reporters today, russian reporters, because -- had no knowledge of what his sons were doing, but was angry and thinking they had been hunted down as targets of some sort of consp
in this week's boston marathon shooting. where is dzhokhar tsarnaev? he could be on the verge of et going caught here despite a massive drag net. >> we do not have apprehension of our suspect this afternoon but we will have one. we're committed to that. i want the neighborhood here in watertown to know that we went through about 20 streets here door to door. >> tsarnaev and his brother were identified as the bombers and since then shot an m.i.t. officer, carjacked -- let's go to a live picture. a lot of activity. let's go to kerry sanders. we don't have him yet. >> there is a suspect that somehow was able to elude the police here. that is the second suspect. and it's possible that he -- because he was on foot, it's believed, is somewhere still in watertown. now, the authorities spent all day combing through 20 streets here and they were even going indoor homes and checking houses and finally they lifted that order for people to remain in their homes. some of them were driving out here with smiles on their faces and now all of a sudden this. i'm going to step out of the way because we have
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes
that ended with a surprisingly subdued ending on friday night. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was pronounced dead after a dramatic shootout with law enforcement early friday morning. his 19-year-old dzhokhar escaped on foot precipitating a shelter in place order for the entire boston area. but the much sought after armed and dangerous teen was found wounded and incoherent in a boat parked in the backyard of a suburban watertown home. discovered not by the hundreds of armed officers who had been searching for him for hours but by the home's owner, reportedly out for a smoke. with one assailant dead and the other in police custody, the people of watertown and the entire boston area expressed their enormous gratitude and sense of relief with spontaneous cheers and applause on friday night. the crisis is over. now the politics begin and this is where our responsibility in the media shifts. in the heat of the crisis, media take on the job of informational clearinghouse, keeping the public up to date, sharing critical information and get the information out right and fast. granted, those are goals
